2017 Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins have just become the first team in nearly 20 years to win back-to-back Cups. It wasn't an easy road, having to face teams with two of the three best records in the regular season (the Penguins were #2) and tons of injuries to key players. The Penguins have now played 39 playoff games over the past two years; the most ever by any team in any sport over a two year period.
Congrats to the Western Conference champion Nashville Predators. Nobody expected them to make it this far, but it shows how a great defense and a hot goalie can take you far in the playoffs.
